Biodynamic

Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming originally developed by Rudolf Steiner that employs what proponents describe as "a holistic understanding of agricultural processes". One of the first sustainable agriculture movements, it treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives. Proponents of biodynamic agriculture, including Steiner, have characterized it as "spiritual science" as part of the larger anthroposophy movement.

Of course, if treating the earth you farm with the utmost respect is bad, well, I then clearly don’t understand farming. Anyhoo…organic wine, biodynamic wine – all great ideas that minimize our impact on the land…

  • A Taste of Domaine Saint Jean du Barroux

    … Jean du Barroux l’Argile 2010 Review Domaine Saint Jean du Barroux l’ Argile 2010 The 2010 L’Argile is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Carignan and 5% Cinsault, fermented in concrete vats.
